Four weeks after it lifted all corona measures, Iceland is now going into a partial lockdown again.

From Sunday onwards, bars and nightclubs must close at midnight, face masks must be used indoors where people meet, a maximum of 200 people can gather at events, and the one-meter rule is reintroduced.

The measures are being introduced despite the fact that around 90% of all residents over the age of 16 have now received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine.

Iceland is experiencing an increased spread of infection, and the authorities fear that the more contagious delta variant of the virus will gain a foothold in the country.

Recently, dozens of new cases of infection have been registered daily, a significant number in a country with only 360,000 inhabitants.
